Thanksgiving is gone and Christmas and Chanukah are right around the corner. So, what’s next?
It’s time to make a New Year’s resolution for 2016. What can that be? What do I need to do – professionally speaking that is. (Personally, I’ve got tons to do. I can even use the same ones as last year since I didn’t really accomplish them.)
So, here’s what I resolve. I am going to shoot more local restaurants on location. Normally, I would do a full day shoot at a restaurant with strobes and an assistant. I’m going to change things up. I am going to offer a 1/2 day shoot, using natural light. This will enable me to offer a professional food photography shoot for less than 1/3 the cost. That could include plated dishes, head shots of the chef or even the room itself.
That was easy. Now, how do I accomplish it? Here is where the work begins. I am going to get online and get the names and addresses of all of the restaurants in central New Jersey and let them know about this great offer.
So, if you know a central New Jersey restauranteur, send them a link to this post. If you are a central New Jersey restauranteur, then visit my website at http://www.photography-by-jerry.com, send me an e-mail or give me a call.
So, to all of my chef friends that have allowed me to photograph their art, I want to wish you a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year.
